I know several dogs with similar symptoms who ended up having TICK PARALYSIS. I don't know if that happens with cats or not but you might want to check. As soon as the vet used a special tick collar called PrevenTix the dog that was completely paralysed was up and walking again. He is now a service dog.
Again, don't know if similar can happen to cats and if there is a PrevenTix collar for cats but suggest you check?
